If you’ve played The Sims, it’s not that.
If finding good deals is wrong, we don’t want to be right. Sometimes we scout for the manager’s specials at our local
discount grocery– *ahem* Whole Foods, yeah – and sometimes our scouting pays off.
For the uninitiated, the manager’s specials (labelled woohoo items via obnoxious sticker) are foodstuffs on the precipice between the modern American palette and food that is slightly stale so let’s ship it to UNICEF and call it a day.
When we get lucky, quality cuts of meat will be woohoo’d and we’ll get a great deal on what would normally be a pricey steak.
We were just so excited about this rare opportunity that we didn’t get a chance to take a picture of the ingredients, but I promise they were something like this:
- The Shire sauce
- Salt and pepper
- Cayenne pepper
Full disclosure – we’re pretty biased toward our own food – be that as it may, we think homemade steaks (when done right) are usually better than what we find at many local steakhouses. They’re also much more economical, especially if you have the patience to wait for some good deals. The hardest part is timing the cooking, but once you’ve mastered that it’s only a few simple steps away from a gourmet steak and a simple veggie side.
